The view over Beyoğlu from a place to Taksim square. What makes Istanbul so fascinating is this mixture of old and new buildings, from the numerous mosques, the basilica cisterna to the highrise buildings in Levent. And all that mixed with friendly and curious people all along, from conservative muslims to western style looking people. All in one place, 14 millione people, one great experience!

This is what I call urban chaos ! It looks as if all these houses were built on one another. But this is naturally due to the use of your long focal lens. You've perfectly depicted man's madness in doing unconsidered things on this planet. Very good shot.

A fascinating image. The numerous satellite dishes are amazing and the image is full of wonderful detail. The contrast between old and new is exceptionally well shown here.

A striking view of the contrast "ŕ la Istanbul", which is in fact a big miniature of the whole Turkey. Your description is very well given, and buildings are surely another reflection of this variety.
I might be tempted to crop slightly from above.

il cielo crea forse un po' di scompenso sul resto della scena che mi piace molto nel contrasto tra le tante case basse e la serie dei grattacieli.
Buona la tonalitŕ,

Good morning Franz,
nice the view as the combination of this section of Istanbul,with the modern and the old buildings that cover every meter of the ground.
I like the clarity and the sharpness of the image as the light and the colour management of the scene.
Have a good weekend,danos
